We study the complexity of testing if two given matroids are isomorphic. The problem is easily seen to be in Σp 2 . In the case of linear matroids, which are represented over polynomially growing ﬁelds, we note that the problem is unlikely to be Σp 2 -complete and is coNPhard. We show that when the rank of the matroid is bounded by a constant, linear matroid isomorphism and matroid isomorphism are both polynomial time many-one equivalent to graph isomorphism. We give a polynomial time Turing reduction from graphic matroid isomorphism problem to the graph isomorphism problem. We then give a polynomial time many-one reduction from bounded rank matroid isomorphism problem to graphic matroid isomorphism, thus showing that all the above problems are polynomial time equivalent. Further, for linear and graphic matroids, we prove that the automorphism problem is polynomial time equivalent to the corresponding isomorphism problems. In addition, we give a polynomial time membership test algo...
